"I started my leadership training with Joyce Cashman shortly after assuming the role of director of the Department of Orthopedics at a busy academic level 1 trauma center. As a "rookie" in this new leadership position, I learned from Joyce within just a few months of coaching how to develop successful leadership strategies, particularly as it relates to increasing interpersonal communication skills. I would not be as well established and confident in my new leadership role at this time, had it not been for the biweekly face-to-face coaching meetings with Joyce Cashman."

"As a physician and health services researcher, Ms. Cashman provided insightful, knowledgeable, and highly personalized assistance as I was making a transition to a physician executive position. Her approach to coaching, complemented by her vast experience in health care – from nursing to the highest levels of senior leadership - helped me better understand my unique strengths as well as areas that would benefit from more focused attention. She offered valuable guidance related to finding the optimal balance between the business of health care, on the one hand, and medicine as an altruistic and helping profession, on the other. She enhanced my ability to communicate effectively with diverse constituencies and to bridge the disparate cultures of clinicians, patients, administrators, and clinical investigators. Her approach is practical, realistic, and empathic but, most importantly, effective"!
